Feel like I have to include him even though he’s on all the first-round boards. Johnson (19, sophomore) is at once electrifying and terrifying, a triple-double threat who can also run his team right out of the game. Scouts are looking to see if he can find a bit more discipline and control in his sophomore season, in which case he has some poor man’s Westbrook possibilities for the next level. The stat line alone tells the whole story here: Johnson averaged a triple double per 100 possessions in ACC games – 23.6 points, 10.5 boards and 10.3 assists – but did it while averaging a phenomenal 7.0 turnovers per 100 possessions. Most point guards are in the 3-4 range on this metric.
